All I wanted for my birthday this year was pictures of all five kids together. I wanted everyone, smiling, happy for ten minutes. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but some days, to have everyone getting along feels like running a marathon. Not that I would know how that feels, because you know, running. But, I imagine that it feels about the same – knees hurting, back sore, and no food in the house – hard.
Well, my sweet husband made it happen. Starbucks, a beautiful afternoon, and a reminder to the kids that this was my birthday present.
